Right, I agree with you. But over-muscularization can zap your stamina because of carrying all that oxygen through your body. Frank Bruno was hindered by it. I wouldn't mention Wlad to disprove the theory either. But yes, natural stamina and lung capacity is more important but too much muscularization can affect your stamina a bit.

He knows hes been losing these fights and he knows hes got little in his bag to do anything about it other than plod on and hope he gets lucky.
I disagree about his power.

I think he has plenty enough power and can KO anybody at 168, but he needs to find them in order to be able to land that power.

I dont know, maybe he could try MMA? I think he could do better there. Big muscular powerful guy. He's a nice guy and I feel bad he's been beaten up 3 fights in a row. Its not his fault, its that horribly style he's been taught which only really works when he's fighting smaller guys,
I think he will have a massive problem with the money, this guy has been making over a million euro's a fight for 4 years, I don't think he is going to fight for $30 000.

He is good enough physically. Technically he needs to stop defending then puching, he needs to block and counter. He needs to stop over shooting. He needs to work off the jab. He needs to break opponents down to the body.

AA has the ability, he just needs a new trainer to teach him new things.

A fighter like AA in MMA would be forced to evolve. In boxing, they stay stuck in one style not learning any new moves or going from camp to camp to learn.

Oh dear what a silly thread.

For starters AA relies on his high guard can you imagine the success he will have with this with diddy 4oz MMA gloves and lets not get started with the grappling.
